Let’s switch up the usual order a little.
Rookie League: Elizabethton Twins 8, Pulaski Yankees 7
I think the Baby Twins won the title! They took the first two games against Pulaski, and no more are scheduled. So, congratulations on winning the best-of-3 series, Elizabethton! Or, sorry your longer series got cut short by deadly hurricanes.
This one was all about RISP, as all eight runs happened on only nine hits. LF Mark Contreras delivered three RBIs in a single dong. RF T.J. Dixon and CF/Star Wars bartender Akil Baddoo both were 2-4. Starter Moises Gomez was just good enough to get the win. Confirmed New Jersey native Jared Finkel allowed two runs in relief, but both came after an error, so he gets to celebrate with the rest of his teammates via ordering a pitcher of 7-Up at the local Chuck’e’Cheese. (No booze for you, baby Twins!)
Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 2, Montgomery Biscuits 0
Your Lookouts are now one win away from the title in this best-of-five series, thanks to a combined shutout headed by ex-Twin Felix Jorge. His WHIP was .666, and that’s always good. The Lookouts runs were provided by “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” native T.J. White’s 4th-inning dinger.
Chattanooga is up 2-0 in this series, so it’s a fortuitous “lookout” for them. Get it? GET IT?
Low-A: Quad Cities River Bandits @ Cedar Rapids Kernels, 6:30 CT
The Mean Corn begin their three-game championship series today. RHP Tyler Watson, whom the Twins got for Brandon Kintzler, is scheduled to start.

Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings off
The Red Wings just missed the playoffs, so their season is over. For this successful 2017, they will be ceremonially anointed with fragrant oils by nubile Rochester maidens.
[No Box Score]
High-A: Ft. Myers Miracle off
The Ft. Myers Miracle’s season ended when they lost in the playoffs on a walk-off hit by pitch. For this shameful 2017, they will be ceremonially disemboweled by elderly Fort Myers golfers.
